A Gift for my Doctors
My two SuperHeroines, my two RockStars have come to play!
First came my Family PA, Vanessa Kearney, She has been taking care of my wife, Kay, and me for many years and she has always kept me headed in the right direction, making sure that I got all my tests and scans in a timely manner and it was one those scans that found my cancer in the very early stages as it came back in my kidney bed and lungs late in 2017. That's when my Oncologist, Dr. Heather Shearer, came onboard and it's her diagnosis and treatment plan that has kept me above ground and breathing all this time since then.

It seemed more than obvious to me that these two ladies deserved any display of gratitude that I can muster and my wood turnings seemed the best way for me to show them how much they mean to me and to my family for that matter. So, I wanted the gifts to be based on something vintage, or historical that was also related to something that they would be using in their everyday medical practice and during my research, I came upon the perfect medical tool... the stethoscope!

Back in 1816 a French doctor, René Laennec, tried using a rolled-up paper because he didn't feel comfortable placing his head on a woman's chest to listen to her heart. The rolled-up paper worked OK, so he then designed the first stethoscope as a hollow wooden tube. At first, I was going to base my turning on that first wooden tube, but during further research, I found a design with a bit more personality and style... Check this out!

Brooke Judie
Senior Brooke Judie has spent much of her time in college thinking about how other people think.

She’s a philosophy and liberal studies major, concentrating in culture, religion, and society. But, it wasn’t until a professor mentioned her strength in writing could be used in philosophy, that Judie dove head first into the subject. Her first foray into philosophy was sitting in on Assistant Professor Dr. Jameliah Shorter’s class.

“I was trying to figure out what I would do with a liberal studies major. I saw her teaching philosophy, and it just changed my whole perspective,” said Judie. “She spoke a lot about how, in order to get context for these people’s ideas, we need to look at anthropology and history. It was a turning point for me, because I realized that this is what I could do with my major—I could teach.”
